Lennon plays down Bellamy talk

Celtic manager Neil Lennon believes it is unlikely Craig Bellamy will arrive at Parkhead for second spell but has not given up hope of signing Norwegian striker Erik Huseklepp.

• Ledley urges Celtic to sign Bellamy

Bellamy spent last season on loan at Cardiff after being left out of Manchester City's 25-man Premier League squad and is looking for another club for the new season.

But League Championship side Cardiff were heavily subsidised by Bellamy's parent club last season and Lennon admits Celtic would not be able to pay all the Wales striker's wages.

Lennon, who played with Bellamy during his loan spell at Celtic Park in 2005, said: "It looks a remote possibility at the moment, unless some sort of scenario comes up where he could come down a bit on the wages.

"He is not back yet (from holiday). We would also need to know what the situation is and what the proposal would be. Peter Lawwell is looking at that, although I am not over-confident on that move.''

But Lennon is looking at the possibility of reviving a deal for Huseklepp after the Bhoys refused to pay £2 million for the striker in January and missed out on a deal.

Huseklepp eventually left Brann to join Bari in Italy, but he could be on the move again following the club's relegation from Serie A.

"He's a player we liked the look of at the time," said Lennon. "Talks broke down because they wanted too much money. But it's a possibility given Bari's situation. He's just one of the options in the hat."
